in law enforcement for years and years. and, mike, let's just you and i walk through what we know right now as we're looking at these pictures, coming into cnn for first time, what more do you know? >> well, brooke, we're hearing also from our affiliate kprc, they have one person detained there on campus. where on campus? we don't know. they don't -- they're not sure if this is the person who was the active shooter there, on the campus of the lone star college, harris north campus, they don't know. but i've been watching this for a number of minutes before i came on with you, brooke. and i've seen at least two, possibly three people that they had been working on, the ems has been working on, there on the scene. we don't know the conditions of anyone injured there. we don't know whether or not this person they have detained again is the active shooter that was there on campus. >> all right, mike. what is happening as we see this tremendous law enforcement presence? how do they, as we know that this college is telling people, if you're on campus, shelter in place. look at the masses of ca
of things. but they also say that only honest law abiding gunowners will be affected if we, quote, if anyone is attacking firearms and ignoring children. that's not the solution to the crisis we face. of course their position has always been this. clearly that is going to be a very tough battle for the president. and it will rely on many democrats who are in red states and who have felt the full force of the pulleying nra stand up and be counted. are they going to do that? >> i think that the issue remains a very open one in the minds of many of my colleagues because they are hearing from their constituents that we really need to do something about gun violence. in fact, i heard that said to me personally again and again and again in the days that i was in newtown after this horrific tragedy, the days and the weeks that i spent huge amounts of time there. people in newtown, people in connecticut and across the country are saying we have to do something about gun violence. and let's remember, one of the president's proposals actually deals with criminals who try to buy weapons and use straw p
health reporting and regulation. the nra said only honest law abiding gun owners will be affected and our children will remain vulnerable to the inevitability of more tragedy. what is the nra's strategy when it comes to this debate. >> are the president's kids more important than yours. >> reporter: in a hard hitting response the nra has rolled out this ad saying the president is happy to have armed secret service agents protecting his children but for everyone else. >> a hypocrit when it comes to fair share of security. >> reporter: it is the latest muscle flex by the gun group superpack which last year spent more than $16 million to influence political races. that is not a tremendous amount for such efforts. big oil, the pharmacy industry and retired people have more and better funded lobbiests. the gun group uses its money and membership effectively targeting early any lawmaker who threatens the rights. >> the national polls can show an overwhelming majority of people in favor of certain gun control measures but republicans know the turnout is small in their primaries and the nra membe
'll quote them, only honest, law-abiding gun owners will be affected and our children will remain vulnerable. what is the nra strategy when it comes to this debate? here is tom foreman with an out front investigation on how the nra gets what it wants. >> are the president's kids more important than yours? >> in a hard-hitting response to calls to are new gun restriction, the nra has rolled out this ad attacking the white house saying the president is happy to have armed secret service agents protecting his children but for everyone else -- >> he is just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security. >> reporter: it is the latest muscle flex by the gun group superpac which last year spent more than $16 million from its deep war chest to influence political races. that's not a tremendous amount for such efforts. big oil, the pharmacy industry, even retired people have more and better funded lobbyists. the gun group uses its money and membership effectively often targeting early any lawmaker that threatens to go against gun rights. larry sab ba toe is at the university of
constitutes an assault weapon. >> right. >> it used to be defined by law from 1994 to 2004 under that ban. it's no longer defined by law yet. but what will an assault weapons ban actually ban? >> well, we're going to see. in 1994 there were 19 specific types of weapons or 19 specific weapons and a broader definition. it was able to take, you know, the -- all sorts of things incorporated in the definition. really a weapons of war and i think part of the 1994 ban has to do with the cosmetics of it, people were frightened by the look of these weapons. whether or not that remains, i think it's one of the challenges for congress to put a reasonable definition together. >> and then when the president seeks to make -- access to mental health better and also the sharing of mental health data more u bic which to us, doesn't that open an extraordinary can of worms in terms of privacy issues. for instance, if i want to go to a psychiatrist and have suicidal thoughts, company end up in a federal registry? >> i think it's an issue and a challenge. we're going to see what congress comes up with. one in fiv
on gun laws, what kinds of guns are used, whether they're legal, what do you know at this point? >> reporter: well, we have been asking around as to whether or not this was a hand gun that was legally owned, legally purchased, what the background is on that gun. obviously there are agents that will handle that part of the investigation. i haven't been able to confirm anything on that end just yet. however, hand guns in the state of texas, you are legally allowed to carry a hand gun if you have the proper license and that sort of thing. however, just because you have that license doesn't mean you can carry guns on to a school campus. campuses and churches, there's a laundry list of places where you can't carry guns and school campuses are one of those. so as the sheriff here said in what i think was a school campus official said it's impossible to check the thousands and thousands of students that come through here, but in theory, this is not a place where you should have had a gun. >> all right, thank you very much. ed continues to work that story. as ed just mentioned, the texa
, as well. >> let's talk about gun laws because i know they're considering gun laws in texas that would allow swron to carry a concealed weapon on a campus. they can't do that now, right? >> reporter: it's interesting. the texas legislators have gone through this debate several times. many years ago they passed a conceal handgun law where you can hear a handgun and that's what was used in this incident. but there are places where even despite having that license you you can't carry a handgun. churches and school campuses are one of those. ironically enough, there are lawmakers in austin that want to change that aspect of the concealed handgun law here in texas and allow students to carry guns on to campus. so we'll see how this plays out in that debate, as well. >> all right. ed lavendera, thanks so much. >>> investigators say the new mexico teenager accused of murdering members of his family had hoped to go on a killing spree and die in a shoot-out with police. the 15-year-old was arrested saturday night after deputies found the bodies of his mother, father, brother and two of his sist
and puts dangerous weapons into the hands of criminals who essentially don't follow the law, something else that could be part of this legislation is creating a registry for any weapons that were obtained before this ban goes in place, and a speech this week one of the nra's eleader's's wayne lapierre says that was totally unacceptable to the nra. >> dianne feinstein's conference is scheduled for 11:00 a.m. eastern, about two hours from now. >>> the military is making a major change, for the first time in history women will be allowed to serve on the front lines but don't expect to see changes right away. pentagon correspondent chris lawrence tells us why. >> reporter: army infantry, marine recon, even special ops, on thursday, they all opened to women for the first time. the pentagon is eliminating its ban on women in combat, but there's a catch. did you know today's army would be so different than the one you joined? >> no. >> reporter: staff sergeant kelly rodriguez deployed three times to iraq and afghanistan and became one of the first female combat medics to work directly with special
measures and, of course, new york state's new gun control law which is now the toughest in the nation and signed into law by andrew cuomo last month. we're covering all aspects of senator feinstein's new bill. dana bash has been following this. she's going to join our crime and justice correspondent. first to you, dana, on capitol hill, theatrics are often times discussed as part of the problem when discussing the military-style assault weapons in the first place and there will be no shortage of theatrics, right? >> that's right. you can see behind me what is going to happen. i counted ten assault weapons that are on display that they decided was critical to display because they want to make a point. they want to show these and to argue that these kinds of weapons are simply not needed in the hands of every day americans. you can probably see here, there are two lines of ropes. that is because it is not legal for these weapons -- never mind being in the united states capitol but also to be in the d.c. -- in d.c. it breaks the d.c. gun laws. so they got special permission from the d.c.
daughters, also his sister and his mother-in-law and brother. and it was a short event. only lasted for about 30 seconds. and then afterwards, sort of a colorful moment, where the president was hugging the first lady, hugging the first daughters and then his daughter, sasha, his youngest daughter, saying to the president, "well, you didn't mess up," again, making reference to the last four years ago when they did have those problems and the president saying, "i did it." so, that was kind of the end of this first phase of the president getting sworn in. and of course, tomorrow is the more public event, when hundreds of thousands of people will get a chance to witness the president getting the -- this oath administered at the capitol. >> most people looked at, of course, the first lady, her new haircut and you girls looking so big, as tall as the first lady and you the president, dan. >> all you have to do is rewind some of the tapes from four years ago, just little girls coming in here to the white house we have seen them grow up over the last four years, mostly out of sight. the whi
on assault weapons struck a nerve with many lawmakers and law men. >> ban every firearm out there. it's not going to fix it. >> a sheriff refuses to enforce it. hey! did you know that honey nut cheerios has oats that can help lower cholesterol? and it tastes good? sure does! wow. it's the honey, it makes it taste so... well, would you look at the time... what's the rush? be happy. be healthy. >>> there is a lot of talk about the president's push to reduce gun violence. we heard from joe biden who did the leg work for the guns package that rolled out yesterday. here he is speaking moments ago at the conference of mayors about denying gun sales with a swath of trouble makers. >> time and experience has demonstrated we should take a close look at the list to see if it fits the needs of society at the moment. it's part of our recommendations to the president and it suggested that the attorney general study that question. for example, right now certain convicted stalkers can still purchase guns. >> again that was the vice president a moment ago. as you have probably heard by now, a lot of
legacy call for tougher gun laws? he called to reinstate the assault weapons ban, restrict ammunition magazines to no more than ten rounds and require background checks on all gun purchases. he also signed 23 executive actions. for the first time in years, it looks like gun legislation could happen and that immediacy is turning the fight over the president's plans very personal. he invited four children who wrote him letters, begging for an end to gun violence, invited them to join him at the white house. 8-year-old grant wrote i think there should be some changes in the law with guns. 11-year-old julia wrote even though i am not scared for my own safety, i am scared for others. i have four brothers and sisters. >> these are kids. this is what they're thinking about. and so what we should be thinking about is our responsibility to care for them. >> but the national rifle association, the nra, it got personal, too, releasing a new ad invoking the president's children. >> the president's kids more important than yours? then why is he skeptical about putting armed security in our schools
and following the rule of law and as more evidence becomes available, they are prepared to act on him again. i think as hillary clinton said dramatically, our focus here now is to bring these guys to justice but also to understand benghazi in the context of what's happening over the last few days to understand the evolving threat from al qaeda and to deal appropriately with that. >> dana loesch there were phone calls today that they would have been fired. do you agree with that? >> there were a lot of missteps here. we do know that you had said that there was a whisper of questioning susan rice and secretary of state clinton. i don't think asking questions on why talking points were changed, we know for sure the u.s. intelligence report came out and said extremists that led the attack had al qaeda ties. why was that removed? who removed it? who was in charge of manipulating these talking points. these are questions i wish would have been asked today. >> okay. that's fine. if you're going to take the argument that anyone guilty of misreading intelligence and so on should actually be fired, wher
differently. the problem with the gun control debate from the perspective of folks who want gun control laws is they need to say, we don't want to target lawful gun owners. 47% of adults in this country say they have a gun in the home. you want to say, we want to separate out the people who are gun trafficking and doing other things that promote the climate of gun violence from that cause of lawful gun owners. i think the nra, they win by losing. the more you have a debate around these issues the more it seems we're going to get more gun laws, the nra builds intensity that way. >> erin, that's the mistake that i've been saying from day one. this should not be a gun control conversation. it should be a gun violence conversation. and if you are talking gun control, you're playing on the nra's field. if you say gun violence and you broaden it, that's a different debate. that's been the problem from day one. >> all right, thanks to all of you. you always want to have the home field advantage. if they have it, they have it. >>> doctors racing to save the vision of a man who was attacked with acid
you go through background checks. you are proficient in shooting. you learn the laws. the time has proven, anderson, since the late '90s when this bill originally passed that chl holders in texas are very responsible citizens. in fact people who do not have a chl are 16 times more likely to commit a crime. >> anderson, if i may -- >> a fraction of a percent have ever been involved in a crime. these are responsible adults. not toting guns around. >> you mention our troops. more are dying from suicide this past year than in combat. >> you're a better journalist than to go down that rabbit trap. >> i'm asking a question. i'm not getting into an argument. i'm just stating a fact. >> no, you're asking me about an issue that has nothing to do with carrying guns on a college campus. >> suicide doesn't, the high number of suicides on college campuses has nothing to do with access to firearms? >> if that's the best you have to debate this issue, that's a sad statement. >> i'm not debating with you, sir. i'm asking a question. if you can't answer, that's fine. you can attack me all you want.
,000 and 2500 law enforcement officers from all over the country. as far out as california, as far south as florida. they're brought here, they volunteer and then they are deputized as united states marshals. for the period of the inauguration. they have police powers, in the city, they also have arrest powersth and they're basically going to be doing crowd control and such. so i, tweeted out a picture of this, a sea of police, that's just the beginning of it you also have something like 6,000 national guards. you have 4,000 from the d.c. police department and you have the unseen as you were talking about a minute ago. >> we talk about stuff being implemented. a lot of stuff they're prepared for just in case. >> absolutely. there's tons of it. obviously there are cameras all over the place, they're watching us and we're watching them and they're watching television. at an undisclosed location there are all sorts of law enforcement agencies, a veritable alphabet soup of organizations watching monitors. waiting for something to jump on. huge crowds expected here, but nothing like last time
go. >> what about external? i mean, i could cite all sorts of different laws in which criminal behavior could have actually been tracked, if this woman had ever asked for a penny from him for treatment. if she had ever asked or encouraged him to raise money. those are crimes. and that's something the police can get involved, and police can triangulate cell phone signals and go after i.p. addresses and find you in a nanosecond, oh where is all of that? >> it's coming. if not, outside private investigations as well. manti te'o just graduated. slated for a top ten draft pick. a $10 million to $20 million investment worth over $1 billion. they do due diligence on players who aren't involved in the most bizarre sports story of the last 25 years. you better believe they're going to dig up every last aspect of this young man's personal life to find out what he did and why he did it, and the story is only going to get more strange as we go down the rabbit hole, i believe. >> you know, i asked the famed sports, the legendary sports agent leigh steinberg in the last hour if this young ma
for that second suspect is the main concern at this hour and i'm told by a law enforcement source that one of the main focuses that they are looking at right now, law enforcement agencies there on the ground is a wooded area next to the campus of lone star college. they believe that's where this second suspect might have fled into so they are paying a great deal of attention in that wooded area and i believe that creates a whole level of terrain and law enforcement officials on the ground must deal with. so at this hour that is what they appear to be focusing on to find that second suspect. >> and we're getting more information, ed, some of it obviously very consistent with what you're hearing, this coming in from the harris county sheriff's media relations department. let me just update our viewers on what they are saying. as i said, a lot of it consistent with what your reporting shows. they reiterate one suspect is in custody, three people taken into custody. they continue to interview all witnesses to gain as much witnesses at the campus library and five agencies have secured a perimet
trying to ban guns from law-abiding citizens for decades. it's disa pointing, but not surprising. the american people know gun ban dos not work. a sponsor of the proposed assault weapons ban, connecticut senator richard blumenthal next hour. what are the final battle lines? one has been eliminated. women are no longer banned from combat units. leon panetta issued the order in the last 30 minutes. >> therefore today general dempsey and i are pleased to announce that we are eliminating the direct ground combat exclusion rule for women. we are moving forward with a plan to eliminate all unnecessary gender-based barriers to serve. >> eliminating the ban will take time and the assessment phase. each branch will examine all the jobs and units not accepting women and then produce a timeline for integration. every three months, service leaders will have to check on their progress and if it's found they are not suited for a unit, an exemption may be sought. one part of the air force, they have been side by side, fighting on the ground for more than a decade. >> this is tech sergeant andre
it as -- as a level playing field. >> paul butler is a professor at georgetown law and a former federal prosecutor and a white collar defense attorney. wow, professor butler, where do i begin? all i could think of was how many people across the country were taking sides on how they felt about lance armstrong and how many lawyers were cringing thinking i would not want to be counsel for him right now? >> well, you know, people are saying, why would he do this, what was he thinking? and lawyers are the first people to be wondering what was he thinking? you know, he probably isn't going to do any jail time. he's not going to get locked up for what he said on oprah, but is he going to be liable for tens of millions of dollars in civil lawsuits, you bet you. >> i knew it. i knew you were going there right away, professor, so here's what i'd like to do. i want to run a commercial break. i want to come back, and i'm going to play for you a couple of very specific things that he said that the layperson might think just sounded like commentary. but the lawyer or the law professor would say, aha, they got h
and above the law. that's what happens. >> a bottom line to you, paul calan, you talk about losing so much of his money. will he have anything left of his $125 million fortune? >> i think a lot of it will be burned up in these lawsuits. i doubt he's going to get indicted by federal authorities for criminal conduct because the statute of limitations has been run but if i was his lawyer i'd be a little worried about that. we'll have to see if there are second acts in american life as f. scott fitzgerald said. for lance armstrong i really doubt it. >> thanks to all of you. we appreciate it. >>> still to come, one american hostage dead in alger ya tonight, but some americans have escaped, and one of them talks to cnn. >>> plus, the president has made gun control a priority. but fewer than half of americans of actually approve of what he's doing. the blooirn, is then ra winning the gun debate. and the arctic tick director of the most famous ballet in the world has been attacked with acid. ♪ [ male announcer ] how do you turn an entrepreneur's dream... ♪ into a scooter that talks to the clou
. that's the word that we are hearing from law enforcement officials, federal law enforcement officials here in d.c. it is a big change from four years ago because four years ago, there were rising threats. there were also nearly 2 million people descending on the city and there were some real fears about what could happen there is still concern and still been game planning every possible scenario, but is there a different tone to the security this time. a, because you've got much fewer people coming. i mean, maybe 600, 700,000 people coming out here. that's big drop from the 1.8 million we saw. it's allowed them to make some changes. some of the bridges from virginia into the city that were closed to you and me last time so that police and all the buses could use them, those will be open. it will be easier access into the city and they learned a lot from last time. so, the secret service is now on twitter. they are going to be putting out updates to help people get around and get people the information they need. so maybe they don't run into as many security problems as you had last ti
within tunisia, they're following the rule of law, and as more evidence becomes available they're fully prepared to act on him again. so i think, you know, as hillary clinton said dramatically, our focus here now is to bring these guys to justice but also to understand benghazi in the context of what's happened in mali recently, what's happened in algeria over the past few days, to understand the evolving throat from al qaeda in the maghreb and to deal appropriately with that. >> dana loesch, there were calls from some people, rand paul and others, that hillary clinton would have been fired over what happened. do you agree with that? >> i do agree with that. i think senator paul was correct in his claims today and how he addressed secretary of state clinton. there were a lot of -- there were a lot of missteps here. we do know -- you had said that there was a whisper of misogyny in questioning ambassador -- or susan rice and then secretary of state clinton. i don't think asking questions as to who gave the orders to stand down or asking why talking points were changed -- i mean, we absol
school in connecticut, president obama moving to tighten gun control laws, and yesterday he signed 23 executive actions that don't need congressional approval, but he wants congress to ban military is style assault weapons and include background checks on all gun buyers. >> if there is even one thing to do to reduce gun violence, even one life that can be saved, then we've got an obligation to try. >> congress so far appears luke warm on proposals to tighten gun control laws and support among americans has dropped slightly. a new poll shows 56% report a ban on semi auto plattic assault weapons, down from 62% in december. >>> president obama expected to name his close aide, dennis mcdonough as new chief of staff. he will replace jack lew, who was nominated to be new treasury secretary. >>> check your flights. winter storm warnings in effect today from mississippi to washington, d.c. places you don't normally hear. meteorologist jennifer delgado looks at that. >> we're tracking snow out there. most of us dealing with rain we have to wait for cold air catching up. we show you right now,
control, for parking, for what have you. and we have about 2,000 individuals from law enforcement agencies, all over of this side of the united states. they try to get people to come close because they can drive in. so those are the numbers. now, what are they going to be doing? certainly trying to keep the crowd safe. but it's also important to say the authorities here are expecting the crowd to be about one-third to one-half the size of the crowd when president obama was naug rainaugurated th time. the trick is to try to stay invisible and not make it look like a police state. we know both at the republican and democratic national conventions there were so many security personnel, they kind of overwhelmed the place and it was perhaps a little too much, not just for the locals but also for the national audience. >> joe johns, thanks very much. >> thank you so much, joe. it's not just inauguration weekend, it's also the martin luther king holiday weekend. to mark that, thousands of people are taking part in a national day of service today. including the first family, obamas helped fix up a

with implementing background checks, tracking firearms, making sure existing gun laws are fully enforced. executive actions mean he does not have to get congressional approval. on the legislative side, he called for criminal background checks on all gun sales. also limiting magazines to ten rounds, and reinstating the 1990s ban on military-style assault weapons. now he acknowledged that some of the legislation faces strong opposition in congress. >> this will be difficult. there will be pundits and politicians and special interest lobbyists publicly warning of a tyrannical all-out assault on liberty. not because that's true but because they want to gin up fear or higher ratings or revenue for themselves. and behind the scenes they'll do everything they can to block any common sense reform and make sure nothing changes whatsoever. >> congressional republicans so far have been cool to the proposals, though some are open to limiting high capacity magazines and tightening background checks. house speaker boehner saying only that he'll review the president's recommendations. a few republicans, though, a

president obama, a constitutional law professor and chief justice of the supreme court john roberts should have known like the back of their hands. but the mistake made for an awkward moment in the middle of a solemn occasion. the swearing in of the first african-american president in front of a crowd more than a million strong on the national mall. robe robert's flub was significant enough that the oath had to be taken again. the very next day at the white house. >> i will faithfully execute the office of president of the united states. >> reporter: cnn senior legal analyst jeffrey toobin wrote an entire book about this awkward moment in presidential history titled "the oath." did they need to do it, again? >> no one knows. >> really? >> to this day because the legal significance of the oath remains kind of a mystery. so, they just said, look, someone could file a lawsuit, someone could make trouble. we don't want to spend the first week, the first month of the obama presidency litigating whether he is president. so, let's just do it. it's slightly embarrass, it's slightly weird. we'll do
to citizenship for some of those law abiding -- otherwise law abiding illegal immigrants in this country. so he's looking at sort of this overall comprehensive package, and the president and his advisors feel like they could make some movement on it in the second term. why? well, you look at who supported the president in the 2012 election. he got more than 70% of the hispanic votes. republicans realize that and you're starting to hear sort of this warming up to the idea to do something about immigration, immigration reform. and so, you know, the president had promised in his first campaign that he was going to make movement on this, did not deliver the way that some hispanics had expected him to do. they're hopeful that in his second term that can happen. >> dan lothian you just used the words warming up, and i know that you got the assignment outside of the national cathedral today and it is bitterly, bitterly cold. i want you to tell me a little bit about the warmth and love inside that cathedral. we're looking at more of the live pictures. this is an awesome event. people may forget it's an
